Xmas wrapping

Keep it Clean: Go green this Christmas

Issue date

We don't tend to have white Christmases in New Zealand but it can be greener if you and your family consider a few things when buying and wrapping gifts for friends and family this year.

Some of the things to consider include:

  • Gifts made from sustainable materials rather than plastic
  • The packaging the gift comes in and how you wrap it
  • Make gifts
  • Give experiences as gifts
  • Donate to a charity
  • Gift a conservation membership or similar 
  • Adopt a species 
  • Support a tree planting charity or project
